With gas solidly over $4 a gallon for the first time and air travel becoming prohibitively expensive, many families are being forced to change their summer travel plans. What are people doing instead this summer?
Maybe trying that Mexican-looking place over on Butterfield Road
Siphoning gas from every car in the zoo's parking lot
Breaking the news to kids that they're not going to Disney World after all, making up for it with the purchase of a crazy lawn sprinkler
Rediscovering the attic
Foregoing tour of Ireland in favor of an afternoon at O'Shaughnessy's
Packing the station wagon, piling into the station wagon, sitting in the station wagon, getting out of the station wagon
Staring uncomfortably at one another closer to home
